It has been hurting since Friday morning, I do not take any drugs. I have not consulted a doctor yet. My shoulder also hurt.
Dear customer,

Thank you for information,

The left side chest pain radiating to shoulder may be due to cardiac cause.The unstable angina or myocardial ischaemia/infarction may cause such pain.It may also cause tingling or numbness in jaw, neck and left shoulder and fingers.

You should have the EKG and 2d echo of heart done to know the abnormality if any after consulting your doctor/cardiologist.

The other causes are pleurisy, chest infection, etc which may also be ruled out.The treatment depends on the underlying cause.

Let me know if you have any doubt.

Thank you
